Uploaded: May 6, 2015 |  0 Comments  | 

The human brain is a complex organ that is responsible for thoughts, feelings and actions. When there is a brain injury, disruption in a young child’s normal developmental unfolding occurs which can result in thinking, emotional, social and behavioral changes. Participants attending this session will be offered a basic overview of brain development and the effects of a brain injury during infancy and early childhood. Emphasis will be placed on social and emotional development, as well as behavior, and resources and strategies from the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) and the Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Interventions (TACSEI) will be utilized.
